    POKER > BBJ is now the largest Bad Beat Jackpot in the Poker World!

    As you are all aware the Bad Beat Jackpot on The International Poker Network is now the largest Bad Beat Jackpot in the Poker World, over €950,000! As we are currently sitting on a world record we want to incentivize all affiliates and partner’s to leverage the Jackpot, so we have devised a new scheme, whereby if an affiliate’s player wins the Bad Beat Jackpot, we will also reward the affiliate with some nice cash rewards for having the winning player, and/or even a player on the table when the Jackpot is won.

    The incentives are (in Euros):
    Winner of BBJ = 10,000.00
    Loser of BBJ = 5,000.00
    Dealt cards on the Jackpot table when BBJ Hit = 500.00

    In order for an affiliate to qualify they need to have completed the following requirements:

    BBJ Story on the home page
    BBJ widget on Front Page (if not on the home page due to template issues, then certainly on a leading sub section)
    Send out a mailer to their player database

    Please use the BBJ widget here:

    TOP TIPS > Targets and Deeplinking

    Did you know? Virgin Games Affiliates is one of the only affiliate programs that allow you to direct your links to any page on our websites, and get a credit for it. Homepages, landing pages, game category pages, game pages, promotions pages, contact us pages, you name it, we can do it!

    There are 2 options to deeplink within our system:
    When picking up your creative (banner/text link, etc…), select “target” in the banner selection drop down menu. This will give you a list of destination pages to choose from. Get the code generated and paste it on you site. All done (but feel free to try the link out).

    If you’re an advanced user, you would have noticed that our tracking links contain a parameter named “URL”. This bad boy decides where your click will take your visitors. Well, you can also manually change the URL parameter. Find out from the code generator (or from us) the number for the Virgin Casino/Bingo/Poker page you want to deeplink to, change the “URL” value at the end of your trackers, and Bob’s your uncle. Once again, test your link to make sure it goes where you want it to go.

    As you remember from our last newsletter, we’re about to launch shiny new Virgin Casino/Bingo/Poker in the summer. We’ll preview them to you soon, but take our word for it: every single page has been engineered to maximise conversions. Our deeplinking functionality will unlock this conversion potential.
